I play in a rec basketball league aside from school and our first game was this past Sunday. The team we played was really tall as in every last player was taller than me although some by not much. It was a really close game the whole time and it was back and forth bucket after bucket. We played full court press the whole time and forced quite a few turn overs but we still couldn’t get a lead that was enough to put the game away. At the end of the fourth quarter it was tied up which meant over time. It was a nerve racking two minutes. They came down and got two buckets and we only had one which made it 32-30. We got the ball and it was hit out of bounds by the other team. We had two seconds left and we threw the ball to Aaron Steave and he chucked up a prayer three and made it we had won with mili-seconds left. We started our season 1-0. I hope we can keep it up.
I Am From
I am from my iPhone and from Nike and Under Amour
I am from the stairs up the hill and the low doorways that are easy to touch
I am from dying grass and the 300 year old tree whose branches grow never ending
I am from burgers on the weekend and walking the dog
I am from Floopy and Buster
I am from hitting 3s and getting buckets
I am from watching sports
I am from do un to others just as you would you would have them do un to you and don’t reach young blood
I am from eating with family
I am from San Jose and more specifically MERICA (yes its supposed to be spelled that way)
I am from mac and cheese and potato salad
I am from my dad ripping out toenails and the intense pain
I am from the pictures on the wall familiar or not
I am from the small paintings on the wall that to be honest mean nothing to me
I am from all of these things whether I like it or not some may be dull but they are a part of me none the less
Karou is my dog and she sleeps 80% percent of the day. Yeah she’s abnormally lazy but she love to go for walks. When she’s on a walk she is a whole different dog. She sniffs everything. But that dog has a sad story. She came from puppy mill (a place where people breed dogs for money) that was raided by Cocker Spaniel rescue. they then sent her two a foster home. She had three foster homes before they found us. But she is fine now and loving her coach!
Well I want to go but I haven’t been. The House of Torment is our local “Haunted House” and it’s supposedly like in the top ten in the nation. I went last year with Kyle and Shaan and it was so fun. People have said that this year it’s even better but some said the opposite so I don’t really know what to expect. I hope it’s fun and that I get to go soon.
Comment on your experience if you have been.
In the heat of the game on the court,
Near the three point line towards the bucket,
Between the defenders among the paint,
Beneath the basket before the shot,
Accepting the pass from across the court,
Considering his options according to the distance,
About to dunk over the defender,
And he misses

This is a video about counting to ten in Chinese. This is what we have learned in Chinese his week. Chinese is really fun.
Good Lord it stinks in there yet it’s still one of my favorite places. Even though I always feel out of place since I don’t play football being in the locker room is still for some weird reason really fun! I share a locker with George and man can he open that locker fast. It takes like half the time for him then it does for me to open it. Also the showers feel really dogwood after running on the track sand lifting weights. The only thing do not like is that it’s so darn crowded.

Another Westlake home game tonight. They will play A&M Consolidated! Lets hope they get the win for the 2-1 record and stay undefeated at home!
Hope to see you at the game, The Bus Driver
This is my first post. Today is the first Westlake football game at home. I will be in the pit. If you don’t know what the pit is I am about to explain it but if you don’t go to West Ridge Middle School of Hill Country Middle School it’s only for students at these two schools. So the pit is behind the end zone and is really just for socializing. So if you don’t go to school here just go to the stands. I’m really exited about it though. Westlake is playing Temple. I hope they win.
Yours Truly, The Bus Driver
